Closure of army hospital delayed until 2010
An army hospital earmarked for closure in last October’s budget will not close until 2010 at the earliest, writes John Burke.
St Bricin’s military hospital on Infirmary Road, Dublin, was due to close, along with four military barracks. However, while the barracks closed in January, it is understood that the hospital will remain open until staff can be accommodated in the new Department of Defence head-quarters, which is being built at Newbridge, Co Kildare.
Building work is continuing at the Newbridge building, which is likely to become operational by 2010 at the earliest.
